Milan Hope To Have Leonardo Bonucci For China Tour
Leonardo Bonucci is very close to joining Milan.
- According to Sky Italia, the gap between Milan’s offer and Juventus’ request for Bonucci has been bridged. He is already on his way to Milan, as the deal will become official on Friday!
- There is still no agreement between Milan and Juventus for Bonucci, nor De Sciglio, Sky and beIN Sports say. The contacts are still ongoing.
- The Bonucci family has started looking for a house in Milan, as a clear sign that they are set to move from Turin, according to Sport Mediaset.
- Milan have agreed personal terms with Bonucci, as he will earn €6 million per season, MilanNews.it claims.
- According to Sky Italia, Milan and Juventus have reached an agreement to make the Bonucci-De Sciglio deals two separate ones. Milan will sign Bonucci for €40 million, without the inclusion of any player. Whilst, they ask for €15 million for De Sciglio, but the Turin club will not offer anything higher than €10 million.
- A new contact between Milan and Juventus is expected to take place in the next few hours, as the the distance to completing the two deals now is only €5 million.
Milan are on the verge of signing Juventus’ defender Leonardo Bonucci, as they are confident of wrapping up a deal as soon as possible.
Bonucci has been a consistent target of Chelsea and Manchester City, with Juventus wanting top money for a player who has emerged as one of European football’s most consistent performers. But now it seems that Milan have overtaken them in the race, as they have emerged as the player’s primary choice.
Sky Italia reports that Milan have both been in continuous contact with Bonucci’s agent Alessandro Lucci this morning and in the afternoon they have also held talks with Juventus, as the Rossoneri tabled in a €30 million bid plus defender Mattia De Sciglio as part of the deal.
The Turin side is now on the move to decide whether to accept the offer or not. All things considered, Bonucci is believed to be pushing for a Milan move, and should Juve decide to accept the offer, the Italian international will be heading to China straightaway with his new team for the China Tour.
Both sporting director Massimiliano Mirabelli and CEO Marco Fassone will fly to China as well as the Milan squad on Friday and they want to close the Bonucci deal very soon.
